London-based product designer Stephanie Hornig has designed Set expanding shelving unit. The shelving system comprises a beech-wood frame with scissor-like pivots and steel shelves.
From the designer, “Inspired by braided structures I aimed to design objects that could create a two- or three-dimensional pattern that is stretchable. The resulting shelving system is based on the principle of a scissors grid with extended axes to make room for shelves. This creates a superimposed image of diagonals, which is adjustable and can be fixed in three different positions. Bended, powder-coated steel sheets with strategic cut-outs form shelves that can be fastened on the axes of the flexible structure in order to fix it in position. Additionally, simple bookends can be inserted that lean directly against the wooden struts.”
